[We’re all in this together.]
Well, hello there, gorgeous. It’s been a long time. A long, long time. A long, long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. But, it’s a pleasure to be in your presence again.
What’s happened while we’ve been apart? My goodness, let me tell you:
- Miles’ life turned, briefly, into a Lifetime movie (fortunately, not The Pregnancy Pact. Something closer to Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life)
- Beyonce and Jay-Z announced the conception of their child. Kanye West got adorably excited about it.
- Chaperone sniffed an awful lot of rubber cement preparing these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4OEX2mzAAE&feature=player_embedded
Now, if I may, I’d like to share a little bit of information about that last bullet. We, in Chaperone, have created 500 (or, you know, 150) individually designed and assembled record sleeves for your visceral enjoyment. Each one is imbued with the powers of those who made it.
